The weather, again, brought a halt to the game with Yorkshire in a good position to gain their 3rd victory in the North Group. A couple of heavy showers had interrupted play previously but a torrential downpour took the players off at 3.06pm and the Umpires abandoned the game at 3.46 pm.

Prior to this Yorkshire had won the toss and elected to bowl first. Evans and trialist, Lees both struck some big shots as they added 68 for the first wicket from 54 balls before Jafer Chohan removed Lees for 34 from 27 balls with 1 four and 2 sixes.

Chohan struck again in his 2nd over having Riefer lbw for 5 – 82-2 from 11 overs. Josh Hen-Boissen made his debut in this format and after conceding 15 from his first over ended with the creditable figures of 2-27 from his 4 overs having bowled Evans (55 from 46 with 8 fours) and Swindells 8 from 8.

Chohan returned and took a 3rd wicket – he finished with 3-27 from his 4 and Leicestershire closed on 148-6.

Will Luxton and Finlay Bean opened our reply but only 4 balls were possible before the deluge – Yorkshire 1-0.

Next action is against the same opposition on Thursday 13th June at Sheffield Collegiate – game due to commence at 1pm.
